IMI Unveils New Magnetic SimpleClean RotoDrawer Housing

April 22, 2013

Industrial Magnetics Inc. has developed a new, rotary style magnet to rid ferrous metal from powder and bulk processed products that have difficult flow characteristics and a tendency to bridge when using traditional, stationary tube-style magnetic separators. The RotoDrawer is ideal for products that have a higher moisture content or particle size, such as flours, cake mixes, or corn starch, and require a high degree of product purity. The RotoDrawer magnet features a motorized, cylindrical configuration of Rare Earth magnetic tubes on a horizontal plane that continually rotate through a gravity-fed product stream. The rotational characteristic of the magnetic array keep the flow moving through the housing, while capturing any ferrous metal contamination and purifying the product. Standard sizes range from 8x8-in. to 18x18-in. inlets and outlets, with custom designs and sizes available to fit your exact application requirements. The SimpleClean features an open/clean mechanical advantage to make is easy for the operator to perform maintenance on the magnet.
